"QR codes may help drive traffic to local libraries:

County officials believe that this initiative will be successful and help consumers grow more attached to local libraries. The services will be available at all hours of the day, even when libraries are closed. Those using the OverDrive application will be able to download books and music while at home instead of having to make a trip to local libraries. These consumers will still have the opportunity to find and scan QR codes as a way to gain access to digital content.

Broward County is not alone in its adoption of QR codes. Palm Beach County has also begun offering downloadable e-books via QR codes. The county does not have any intention of joining the Freegal Music Service at this time, however."
